This week we just scratch the surface of backing up and storage in the mysterious cloud….
new office printer finally for DJ!
Paul Mentions OTIXO as a cloud storage aggregation service.
And the difference between “Back up” and “storage”;
Back up is the incremental mirroring of your computer, applications, settings, and working files to either a local hard drive through programs such as Acronis Tru Image (Win), Time Machine (Mac), or Paul’s Mac favourite, SuperDuper (Mac).
Storage is the place where files your finished digital files end up, it needs to be a system that protects your work for the long term, and allows you access to the files. Peter Krough is the leading thinker on storage with his DAM book that proposes a 3,2,1 strategy. 3 copies of every file, in two forms (e.g., cloud and hard drive), and one in another place.
Do not confuse the two. You need both
Cloud offers good backup and sharing, but it is not fast enough not long-term enough to consider for good storage for photographers.
